"El Caballero de la Mano en el Pecho"

The picture that I'm going to analyze is:"El Caballero de la Mano en el Pecho".
This picture was painted by the Greco around 1578 or 1580, his first spanish age.This picture is painted in oil on canvas.
This picture is made up of dark colours, where the bright part of the picture is the hand of the man and his face, and specially the parts in the neck and in the wristle which antecedent the others parts.
In this picture whe can see that the hand is huge compared to the rest of te body, and also that the face of the man is very large and also the neck.
When the Greco painted this pictured he do it to look like he was doing a deal with the person who looks at him.
I really like this picture because the important parts like the face or the hand of the man are in contrast with the wall, the hand and the face are bright and it contrast with the wall. Also because is a very misterious picture, I mean, anybody knows who was him.
